This course focuses on recent advances in modelling techniques for analysing data including mixed models and nonparametric tests.

This course provides an introduction to a range of statistical techniques used in the analysis of spatial data. It will cover the basic concepts and techniques of spatial data analysis (SDA) and provide a wide range of applications examples from various fields such as geology, demographics, epidemiology and environmental sciences.

A comprehensive lab programme uses a variety of software packages (including ArcGIS, Geoda, geoR and WinBUGS) to explore and analyse spatial data using the techniques taught in the course.

STAT450 is dual coded with GISC404.


Subject to approval of the Head of School.
